Is the United Nations a credible mediator? 

Not if the caption to this picture is accurate:
Hezbollah supporters furious over an Israeli airstrike in Qana that killed up to 50 refugees, are surrounded by smoke from a fire after breaking through glass to storm their way into the main United Nations building in Beirut, Lebanon Sunday, July 30, 2006. Thousands of Hezbollah supporters, many burning U.S. and U.N. flags, scaled fences, smashed bulletproof glass, and threw rocks at the building before storming through barriers and entering the ground floor of the building itself.

Sheesh. Even I have no urge to burn down a United Nations building.

Do not expect to see any condemnation of this attack, though. The soft bigotry of dual racism will give Hezbollah a pass, and chalk it up to that force of nature without a will of its own, the Arab "street."
